North Korea 'Prepared' To Fire Nuclear MissileAccording to sources ,North Korea is ready to launch a nuclear war if it feels threatened, the country’s ambassador to the UK has told Sky News. In a rare interview, the senior official told us North Korea has nuclear weapons and is ready to use them. “We are prepared,” he said. “That is why I say if a sparkle of a fire is made on the Korean peninsula, it will lead to a nuclear war. “We don’t say empty words. We mean what we mean. It is not the United States that has a monopoly on nuclear weapons strikes.” “So can I just be clear: you are telling me that the North Korea has the ability now to fire a nuclear missile?” I clarified.  “Any time, any time, yes.” Hyun Hak-bong also hit out at allegations made against his country days after the United Nations launched yet another investigation into North Korea’s human rights record. The diplomat was asked about allegations made to Sky News last year by North Koreans living in the South Korean capital Seoul.
